I just keep telling myself "anything that keeps interest in the franchise alive is a good thing"...

At the very least, seeing the Kyoto Arc depicted in a modestly competent live-action makes more sense than having Okada Mari bastardize it when animation has already covered it almost flawlessly.

No offense, but why do you need to use this as an excuse to snipe at Okada? She'll not give a 1/10 of a damn from us foreigners no matter how much we complain.

Because her changes to the Kyoto Arc were a travesty and an insult to the series?

Full Trailer.

New song by ONE OK ROCK, "Mighty Long Fall".

Final battle seems to change to the Iron warship.

Oh shit that last scene with Shishio taking on all four heroes !

28 August 2014 for Singapore.

Looks like I'll be able to catch it before returning to UK, I'll have to figure something out for the other film when I'm there.

Just got back from the theater.

They played the movie surprisingly straight unlike the first where they retooled and compressed a lot, though that's more of the fact that they have a lot more screen time to work with now.

As usual it's the fights that are the centerpiece and they didn't disappoint. Some people might find the pace of Himura's fights too dizzyingly fast and frenetic, but that just really emphasizes how blindingly fast he is and how Hiten Mitsurugi is a style really meant for fighting while outnumbered.

Personally though the highlight fight for me was not any of Himura's fights, but Okina's and Aoshi's fight.

Acting wise the old cast is a lot more believable and convincing, especially Takeru Satoh's Himura, while I still find Kaoru a bit too... pretty considering she actually gets into fights in this movie.

My only disappointment his how Aoshi got sort of made into a straight standard "I want to be the best in Japan" RK villain, then again he doesn't get a lot of screen time in the movie. On the other hand, Soujiro's actor was completely spot on, all the way from his empty smile to the way he hops when he fights.
